Opening Times

11am – 5pm

This unique 100ft tower is Faringdon’s icon and the last major folly to be built in England. It sits on Folly Hill, within a charming woodland of splendid Scots Pine, some more than 200 years old.

Fantastic views over 5 counties.

Find out about the history of Folly Hill, Henry James Pye, Oliver Cromwell and the very eccentric Lord Berners (the creator of the Tower).

Seek out 24 black birds, Cromwell’s cannon,  the many birds and animal sculptures lurking among the trees- there’s even a giraffe.

The Folly Tower is open  twice a month from April to October.

The woodland is always open and entry is free.

The Tower is available for private bookings throughout the year.
